British PM resorts to Iranophobia to sell weapons

British Prime Minister David Cameron resorts to Iranophobia to sell weapons to Arab dictatorships in the Middle East region.

Under fire at home and abroad for acting openly as a salesman for the UK’s weapons industry, Cameron resorted to demonizing Iran in his desperate bid to sell as many as 100 Typhoon fighter jets worth £6billion to Persian Gulf countries of UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman.

Speaking on a visit to the United Arab Emirates, David Cameron again accused Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons, alleging that “it would make the Middle East a more unstable and more dangerous place”.

However, he failed to acknowledge that selling more than 100 state of the art fighter jets and thousands of other types of weapons to undemocratic regimes could also be a destabilizing factor in a region already struggling with uprisings and revolutions.

The Prime Minister of cash-strapped Britain also failed to answer whether it was appropriate for “Mr Cameron to promote British arms sales to regimes which have given rise to human rights concerns”.

It is now an open fact that cash-strapped Britain desperately needs money, so much so that its prime minister takes representatives of weapons manufacturing companies with him to authoritarian countries and resorts to Iranophobia to sell fighter jets and other weapons to Arab dictators.

And it is also an open fact that Iran, as a responsible member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a signatory to nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), has always been ready to cooperate with the IAEA to ward off misunderstandings and resolve technical issues and questions over its peaceful nuclear energy program.
